When designing a bathroom, style is an important aspect for many people. So we’ve taken a look at some of the biggest bathroom trends and found the VictoriaPlum.com customers who have executed them to perfection. It just goes to show, you don’t have to be a designer to get a designer bathroom.

1. Wallpaper panels

Wallpaper can look amazing in the bathroom, you just have to make sure that you have good ventilation or an extractor fan to protect it. Alternatively you can apply a coat of varnish to the wallpaper to ensure that it doesn’t peel or become damaged.

Wallpaper allows you to apply textures and depth to your bathroom walls and achieve a style that you otherwise wouldn’t get with tiles. It also helps bring a touch of colour to your overall decor.

2. Majestic monochrome

Black is an authoritative and powerful colour and will always remain an excellent choice for your bathroom. Mixing black units with lighter elements really makes your furniture stand out and creates a distinctive style in your bathroom. Contrasting black and white works really well in smaller bathrooms to create a dark and dramatic look.

Peter from London uses contrasting black tiles and white bathroom furniture excellently to achieve the monochrome look. We especially love the Harrison white free standing bath as it looks really stylish, and it stands out really well next to the black wall tiles.

3. Streamlined and sleek

Some of the most stylish bathrooms are those that are the most efficiently designed. It’s a great idea to make the most of the available space in your bathroom with cutting edge design that not only looks great, but adds lots of functionality. Furniture units that combine multiple elements such as storage, a basin and toilet make your bathroom look larger by freeing up more floor space.

Irene from Lowestoft uses a furniture combination unit that fits the width of her bathroom perfectly. The unit looks great because it elegantly conceals her toilet cistern and basin pipes. Irene has managed to fit a large amount of bathroom furniture into a small space without creating a cluttered bathroom.

4. Raw wood

Exposed wood is coming back into fashion. In your bathroom, you should embrace the natural beauty of wood when choosing furniture, flooring or even walls. A raw wooden feature such as a wooden cabinet creates a lovely focal point in your bathroom. The wood grains and textures create a different feel and look, while adding a touch of the outdoors.

Jacqueline from Cumbria shows how lovely an exposed wooden beam can look in her bathroom. The beam adds a rustic weathered style and adds a lot of character to her bathroom.

5. The classic Victorian

Period style bathroom furniture is very on trend at the moment and can add a touch of class to your elegant bathroom. A freestanding bath is the very height of luxury and takes a Victorian style bathroom to the next level. Classic white traditional furniture helps complete the look with extras such as chrome taps and finishes. By re-using existing features of a room such as bare floorboards or exposed brickwork you can really help enhance your overall design.

Jez from Portsmouth showcases an elegant Shakespeare roll tap bath in his classic Victorian style bathroom. We love the finishing touches such as the old print poster that really helps transport us back in time.
